So, I know of a few sites that sell 20mm WW2 but it seems that most of the really nice looking stuff is sold in the UK and shipping is quite high.

NWS wargaming takes care of my PSC needs, however I can't find who sells AB infantry here in the states.

Also, I know trumpeter, armorfast and a few other manufactures make some nice 1/72-20mm stuff, but I have no idea who sells this online.

I went to Michigan Toy Solider co sells a lot of stuff, but they are pretty pricey.

Any other suggestions for US retailers that sell 20mm vehicles?

Ok, there is Eureka miniatures for AB infantry!---thank you Google!

RAFM is Canadian , so closer. You can also check out https://www.scalehobbyist.com/index.php for plastic models. There's a large number of on-line hobby store which carry PSC models

Try FAA

https://www.faaminiatures.com They are U.S. based and have a good range of 20mm figures & vehicles.

Does FAA respond to emails or orders? I remember seeing issues when they changed hands.

Eurekaminusa.com sells the full range of AB 20mm figures right here in the US. Rob is great to work with and customer service is fantastic.

Rob is a good guy to deal with. Purchased many items from him at conventions.

To jsmcc91

Just got some Brit paras from tem last week. Went okay!

Cpl,

That is good news. There were some nice figures in the FAA range.

Second the service from Rob at EurekaUS, just incredible service, I do not believe that I have ever waited more then 48 hours.

I have to admit I also really like TQD models.

We ship stuff to the States all the time never had a complaint about shipping, then again we do calculate it at cost rather than having a flat rate system.

You can get the Force20 WWII era troops and pulp figures online from Covert Intervention Games or retail from The Games Tavern in Chantilly, Virginia. Covert also just announced they have purchased rights to, and are re-releasing and adding to, the Combat Miniatures WWII and Modern ranges.

Getting AB WWII from Eureka USA is always a good option. Syr Hobbs is a good option for Elhiem WWII. Although overseas, Leon at Adler is always very responsive with regards to his product.

Other than PSC where in the us is a good source of 20mm armor?

Put together 2 Recall kits and they are not made for gaming 😯

captaincold6930 Apr 2018 6:36 a.m. PST

Sorry, that should have said Revell kits!

Grumble8710604 May 2018 9:15 p.m. PST

Try Hobbylinc. They are located in Atlanta GA.

Grumble8710605 May 2018 4:59 p.m. PST

I went to Michigan Toy Solider co sells a lot of stuff, but they are pretty pricey.

Just as an example for comparison, Michigan Toy Soldier sells the quick-build PzKw IIIJ for $22 USD (that's two models, by the way). HobbyLinc sells it for $17.50 USD. Same price applies for all other AFV's.

Regarding selection, MTS has 29 AFV's, one artillery piece (German 105) and one house in stock for $22 USD each, and two figure sets (German mortars and machine guns) for $15 USD each.

HobbyLinc has 21 AFV's, one artillery piece (German 105) and one house in stock for $17.50 USD each, and two figure sets (German mortars and machine guns) for $12 USD each.

So if you want a T34-76, a Cromwell, A StuG III, an SdKfz 251, an SU85, a T34 model 1943, or a StuIG 33B, you'll have to pay the higher price at MTS. Otherwise, HobbyLinc is the go-to place. Maybe MTS charges more because they keep bigger selections; I don't know.

Full disclosure: I'm not an employee or stockholder of either company. Just a satisfied customer -- of both. grin

HobbyLinc also sells Italeri quick-build 1/72 models, two to a box.

Some of their Italeri are out of stock, but right now you can get SU 152 $9.50 USD, US Jeep $12.99 USD, M3A1 halftrack, M3 75mm halftrack, M7 Priest (also include Kangaroo option), SdKfz 251/1 C $12.99 USD, M13-40 Carro Armato $12.99 USD and T34/76 Model 42 $12.99 USD.

Pegasus quick-build kits of two vehicles sold by HobbyLinc include BA 6 Armored cars, BT 7 light tanks, US army 2 ton trucks, T 34-85s, KV 1, T-26, KV 2, T34-76, ISU 122/152, and Pz t-38.

Hope this is helpful.
